Healthy Movers in Early Years - Spring 2023 - Spring 2025

Physical activity is fundamental in the early years of a child’s life. It helps children to acquire a range of new skills such as language and numeracy, develop their brains and establish the building blocks for an active and healthy life.

Youth Sport Trust will be delivering ‘Healthy Movers’ in Early Years settings between Spring 2023 and Spring 2025. This has been funded by Public Health, Milton Keynes City Council.  

Healthy Movers aims to develop Physical Literacy in children aged 2-5 and improve their school readiness and social mobility through a range of physical play and activities.

The programme consists of a day one training course, designed to help practitioners deliver fun and meaningful physical activities in their settings. This is accompanied by a comprehensive toolkit, which complements the EYFS, including a handbook, resource cards, stickers and music. The play-based activities support the development of the fundamental movement skills of locomotion, stability and object control, as well as connecting healthy habits such as healthy eating and oral health.

Watch this space for further details about upcoming practitioner training events.

Previous sessions


Please see learning resources from Mental Health HEE NHS below. Health Education England (HEE) is part of the NHS, and they work with partners to plan, recruit, educate and train the health workforce.

We are delighted to announce that we have been working with colleagues at Healthy Teen Minds to develop and launch a suite of mental health crisis learning resources

These resources have been designed by young people, working with professionals too, allowing you to hear directly from them about what helps in a moment of crisis. The tools complement existing training and education. They aim to build an individual’s confidence to have effective conversations and provide personalised support to a young person in a mental crisis.

The short Crisis Tools learning guides we have supported are:  

We need to ensure this learning resource gets to the front line, especially to those who work in health and care, educational and emergency response settings. Please share these online tools far and wide with your networks. We have provided suggested copy for your communication channels and the intended audiences we are hoping to reach. We will be actively promoting on social media channels too, so please do support us with this by sharing if you can.

Finally, but most importantly, we would like to extend a special thanks to the young advisors who have co-produced and co-led on the curation and development of these resources. They have all selflessly shared their lived experience of mental health crisis, so we can better understand what support young people want and need to hear in a mental health crisis.
